    Shop move/renovation/build

    Hey everyone. I got inspired of all the nice shops shared here so i just had to share mine. Ivve been at it since this summer and there is still some left to do but im so happy with how things are turning out and to have a place like this.
    It was a dark and damp garage when i moved in, thought id just epoxy the floor and throw some paint on the walls. But after moving in i discovered quite a bit of mold and the roof was leaking.
    Pictures arent very many since i recorded a bunch of video instead. Outside walls got clad with corrugated metal sheets. The old office was removed and rebuilt on the outside and a door was put in through one of the long walls.

    It wasnt really planned but the stars alined and a complete overhoul was done, got a new press brake and i retrofitted my router (and painted) Hope you like it as much as i do.









    New office on other side of a wall.


    Office done.

    Nice space!!! If I had something like that I'd probably never make it home.

    Thanks guys! I feel really lucky.

    The place next door is a powdercoating company, hence the color matching I help them, they help me.

    Going there today to make some more sound absorbers out of left over cieling panels. You can see two of them on top of the "wire cage/track"-thing in the second last photo. They are both to ad some color, absorb some high pitch sounds from the router and I have some holes in the walls to cover up. Tripple whammy!

    Your places look amazing! I am 100% sure that this was lots of work, but the outcome is worth it. I cannot even imagine how you have managed to make it look like that, but I am going to congratulate you on that. I am also owning something similar to this and I am wanting to transform it into a work area. I was thinking about contacting senwood.co.uk since I have some friends who have worked with them and I must say that they did a great job! It's outstanding how capable are humans of creating buildings or interior spaces!

    Thank you for those words!
    The business has however grown and I have moved out of there and done up a place next door.
    I put down a nice thick selfleveling epoxy floor this time and similar cieling. Painted walls ect. About as big of an transformation as this was!
    Ive documented the process on youtube for whoevers interested.

    Looks interesting. How much did it take you to renovate this place? I also started a renovation process in my house, but I wasn't expecting it would be so hard. I face many problems every day, starting with the lack of instruments and finishing with the expenses. Not so long ago, I bought a circular saw from https://trimthatweed.com/best-corded-circular-saw/, and the problem is that I need this saw only for one day.

    Hi @jacobjons
    Hope you are doing good.
    If you are facing these issues then you can hire labour from fast labour hire. They have a team of experienced and professional labour. You dont need to do anything. Just guide them and they will do all the works.

    Very beautiful work. I liked it very much. I was even inspired to make repairs in my house. I was recently renovating my garage so that I could live there. I made the interior in the style of modern classics, which helped me learn more about these radiators. My friends appreciated my work very much, and some even asked me to help them renovate their house. Do you want to do a renovation in your home?

    It was quite appealing to me. This motivated me to make repairs to my house. My kitchen was just redone. My friends admired my work and even requested me to assist them in renovating their homes. Do you intend to renovate your home?

    Re: Shop move/renovation/build

    Your garage looks great! When we did a major renovation, we hired an interior designer with whom we developed a design project. One of the most difficult parts was choosing interior doors. Because of the wide range, it's hard to choose what you really need. So far, I trust only one company that makes custom size doors. I am very selective about any interior elements. You've probably never thought about how important the choice of doors can be. At the moment, Belldinni is my favourite company, and I am ready to recommend it to everyone.

    We just started building a garage. So far we are only doing the foundation, but I am already looking for building materials for further work. A house with a gray soft roof. I want to find a similar one for the garage, so that it does not stand out and everything is harmonious.
